Author's Notes: This is ground out from a very odd dream... but it really hit me hard this morning. So I thought I should write it down. I suspect that this is from getting all that feedback I got from After Care. Short enough I could, unlike the other one. But I'm editing this afterwards in order to get this more like a story rather than just that first sharp shock of a dream.

Jyuushiro stepped out into the compound of the Thirteenth Division.

He took it all in in one snapshot of a horrified moment. Kira's hands had been bound together so tightly they were blue, and Gin had pulled the fukutaichou's hands over his own head. Kira was impaled on Shinso's tip and Jyuushiro saw Kira mouth the words, "I'm sorry. Please live."

Jyuushiro took two quick steps to his left, leading Gin's eye just before he took a shunpo step, hard, to Gin's three-o-clock position. He heard Kira scream and arch and then Shinso was pointed at Jyuushiro. Jyuushiro stopped there just an instant. Jyuushiro felt Gin's reiatsu flare as he fired Shinso, but he had already moved away again, to Gin's back. Even so he felt a slash across his left shoulder. Shinso was just that fast.

Jyuushiro couldn't help but be thankful for reflex, for the tracking arc. Otherwise Shinso would have fired through Kira to kill him.

As Jyuushiro stepped, he readied the simplest of fire kido and fired it, point blank, at Kira's bindings. He trusted that the rope would burn sooner than flesh, and the trust was rewarded as the binding parted. Still, there was the smell of scorched flesh. Jyuushiro grabbed the fukutaichou. He heard the young man grunt in real pain as he grabbed all that tortured, burned, and cut flesh that he'd also seen in the first, horrified moment. It didn't matter compared to their lives.

He blessed those centuries of losing badly to Yoruichi. He now had ingrained knowledge that when playing shunpo tag, the follower had to almost blindly just go in the direction the leader had set. One could judge distance but it was very hard to judge direction.

Jyuushiro went straight up. Hard.

With the burden of the fukutaichou he didn't go that far, but he didn't need to. Gin appeared in the air above him and started falling towards them with a yelp. Jyuushiro turned and put both feet on the ex-captain and got the leverage to push, hard, for his shunpo step. There was no one and nothing else to push off of up there, so he would now have a moment as Gin fell.

Jyuushiro ran through a dozen possibilities and ended up in front of the Fourth. He was through the doors and into Unohana-san's office as quickly as he could open doors and find purchases. He dropped the young, abused fukutaichou at her feet, and then told Sougyo no Kotowari to tell Katen Kyoukotsu and Minazuki what the hell was going on.

The zanpakutou complied but returned I will also tell Ryūjin Jakka.

Jyuushiro thought for the moment it took to get out of the building. He answered, Please do.

He knew they could not release in Gotei 13's grounds without permission. He felt Sougyo no Kotowari's agitation at that fact, and the fact that they had to go back and catch Gin's attention and fight an already released zanpakutou.

It's only for a few moments, he thought.

We may only last that long without the element of surprise, was Sougyo no Kotowari's wry answer. But we will do our best.

As always.

Then came that familiar reiatsu. Shunsui. Never lazy when it really mattered. Together they flared what reiatsu they could and faced Gin, whose mouth quirked up in a grin. Two shots were nearly as fast as one.

But then the black Hell butterfly appeared and sonorously started to intone, "Captains may now release..."

Gin went slit-eyed like an angry cat for just an instant, and then the mask was back in place. He tsked in disappointment and flickered away.

Of course, that was when Shunsui chose to ask mildly, "Are you bleeding or is that just your way of showing me how glad you are to see me?"

*grin* He looked.. slit-eyed like an angry cat... mostly in the dream.

I'm not sure I'd keep the scream if I'd actually polished it for a fic. Probably the usual tsk of disappointment and he's off again after having tried to kill Ukitake *through* Kira... gah.

Yeah, zangetsugirl has kind of engrained her vision of how the zanpakutou interact on me a bit.
I do hope that Ukitake managed to step hard on Gin's face when doing that push-off step. :)

And neat piece!
Ukitake Kicking A** FTW Baby!!!

Its nice to see some Action here..specially with Ukitake's using Gin's front (or was it is face?) as a spring board to Shunpo!

Great fic! C:
Thank you! Hee. It's still... raw dream at the moment. I think I'll polish it up now that folks have reacted to it... I was really unsure of it.

wow ... very nice to get to read this first thing after having internet restored in the basement, though I'm still sans internet of my own, internet is internets.

Very lovely writing. I really want more in this series. You write it so intriguing.
Thank you! So much.

I'm thinking more along these lines. Though it's definitely more plot than has been so far.
Wow, this gives me ideas. Is this part of the universe we're writing in? Or is this a seperate thing??

Ahh, the zanpakuto communicating with each other. *dies* How cool. xD
I think this is going to be part of the universe we're writing in. I need calmingeffects to peer at it in a bit, and see if it fits with some part of her concepts of Kira and Gin. But, it could be part of it, definitely, so far as I'm concerned.

Yeah... the zanpakutou talk with each other. *grin* If they can get out, they might as well do it with each other, too. zangetsugirl's zanpakutou concepts really color how I write the swords.
Gooo! Yeah!

Let's do a short sequal to this where Shuu comes barreling into the 4th Division headquarters and Uki has to calm him down!!!!!! GYAH the ANGST!!!!! Another great reason to postpone the UkiShuu for now! XDDDD Plot bunnies are running rampant!!!!

*loves you*

Sure thing. I think some of this has to do with the fact that Kira broke enough to give Kira only Ukitake's name. That he understood that Ukitake might be able to handle Gin, but he could not.
*chuckles* that last line kills me...this was very fast moving and dreamlike....interesting...*claps* i will say more later i need sleep now LOL talk to you soon *huggles* missed you!@!
Shunsui had to have that line. I'm still mildly bemused by it.

*hugs you warmly* Yes, we have to talk about it.

I've missed you a lot, too. Sleep is good!!
Sweeeet! Love the action and suspense. I also adored that Kira thought of Ukitake first. To me that means Kira has broken Gin's stranglehold of him. I like that thought. :D

LOL!! Ah Shunsui and his excellent timing, not to mention his superb comic relief. XD

Great job with this. ;)
I love Shunsui's quips in the manga... *grin*

Yeah, I do like the thought of Kira at least stepping a little out of Gin's stranglehold on him. It's past time, in some ways... I love how calmingeffects got Kira out of the Gin deadlock in her Ukitake/Kira fic, but I'm not sure we're going to have quite the space to do all of that. But then again, I don't know, either.

Thank you!!
Oddly enough, this makes me wanna see what Gin was like to Izuru when he was still a captain. c:

Is that bad? xD
Re: :3
Ah ha!! calmingeffects unlocked everything, so you can see it now, from the heated knife tips to the choking to the bondage and... well.. you'll see.
